Contouring: it’s been a make up technique for a while now, especially used by celebrities who are fortunate enough to have professional “glam squads.” Lately it has become very popular and you can’t go on Facebook or YouTube without seeing some sort of tutorial. Although it is a fun and neat process, wearing a lot of face make up in the summer is not ideal. When it’s hot outside, no one wants to worry about sweating off their make up or having their face feel sticky and gross. This Fashionista conquers this problem by putting all emphasis on her eyes in her make up look. It’s the perfect way to have pretty, bold makeup. Because the eyes are the main focal point, it’s not as important to spend time in the morning putting on foundation, bronzer or concealer. The pretty golds she uses on her eyes are the perfect summer shade.

I also love the accessories in this look. The gold choker necklace and anklet, the bracelet, the knotted denim jacket and the white nail polish all work together and really complete the outfit. This Fashionista chose to use white polish and I think it looks great against a tan, or with black sandals like hers. She also coordinates her gold make up look with the gold accessories and even though it’s not absolutely necessary, it’s still a pretty effect.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? To replicate the look that this Fashionista created, you will need an eye shadow palette, nail polish and mascara. It’s important to focus on the eyes to recreate this look because when you’re spending a day shopping at the outlets like this girl, there is no need to have heavy face makeup that won’t last during the summer heat.
